Hey guys,

Based on the phenomenal growth of all our forums, we will be moving from the shared hosting platform we've been using to a new Virtual Dedicated Server over the next week or so. The good news is, this should give us even more forum speed and performance and will give me much more detailed control over the server so I'll be able to further tweak back end stuff moving forward.

The (small) downside is, when it comes time to move the database portion, there will be a window where the forum will not be accessible. If all goes smoothly, I'm hoping this will only be a few hours. Rest assured that this is an upgrade and that these minor issues will give us much more room to grow in the years to come. I'll be rolling the migration over one forum at a time and will post a note on each when I know the specific date / time the move will happen.

Other than the downtime, there will be no change to end users. The url stays the same and everything will look identical. I'm just giving you guys some advance notice so it doesn't come as a total shock the day of the move :) Hopefully I don't break anything in the process. Wish me luck! lol

thanks,
admin

Members, just a heads up that this forum is up next on the server migration schedule. I'll be moving content today and later this evening, the forum will be locked temporarily while the database is migrated. The downtime will most like be less than an hour, but between teat time and DNS propagation, I can't guarantee that new posts won't get lost as some members see the old database while others see the new one. I'll do my best to minimize that window though.

Of course I missed you, but I knew you were vacationing, so wasn't worried.

OK, one down, one to go in the morning. I'm too tired to continue :)

This site has a separate database just for the gallery.
